[There is a limit to the weight,]

Anthony Mason


There is a limit to the weight

I bear without a word

Not so unlike the fragile nest

Contains the tiny bird,

Or the nail sure within the wall,

That lonely, holds the frame

But burdened still, without a thought,

Or thanks thereof the same.

There is a lot within this life

That some have failed to see,

Who dine upon the honey sweet,

Yet never bless the bee.
